Description:

Located approximately 25 miles north of Seattle, The Future of Flight...

Located approximately 25 miles north of Seattle, The Future of Flight Aviation Center & Boeing Tour is the only public tour of a commercial jet assembly plant in North America.

Explore the interactive exhibits and displays in our 28,000-square-foot Aviation Center Gallery; then take a 90-minute tour of the Boeing plant where you can watch 747s, 777s, or 787 Dreamliners being assembled right before your eyes.

There is a minimum height requirement of 4 feet (122 cm) for children participating in the Boeing Tour. To avoid disappointment please make sure to check height before purchasing tickets. This restriction is strictly enforced.

ADA accessible tours are offered twice daily. Call in advance to ensure proper accommodations.

In the Future of Flight Aviation Center Gallery, the Family Zone is home to a number of different activities, all designed around a theme of aircraft manufacturing and assembly. Activity carts let visitors build a simple aircraft model, or use our Lego (and Lego-compatible) pieces to express new ideas about aircraft design. A kid-sized airport and aircraft allow future pilots of all ages to practice their take-offs and landings. Currently, the Family Zone is also home to a highly engaging, hands-on nanotechnology exhibit, and our new Bernoulli Table, an exciting interactive experience that teaches the relationship between the velocity of air and the pressure it exerts. Coloring and reading activities are also available, and drop-ins are welcome. Admission is free for ticket holders and for Future of Flight Foundation Members.

We always take kids once a year, and any visiting out of town guests. It is a big wow, especially for anyone who flew in to visit!

It was so cool to see the plants, museum, observation deck. I wish you had more time to watch everything. It seemed like we were rushed a little but it was so cool to see everything. It was a decent amount of walking with some steps to deal with. I almost forgot to look from the observation deck. It was... More

I had the great opportunity to work with the Boeing Company over the course of my career at Pratt & Whitney and was fortunate to visit the assembly floor on a number of occasions. Now retired we couldn't pass up the Boeing tour during a recent Seattle visit. It's still as impressive as ever. The sheer size of everything and... More

The plant tour exceeded our expectations and our tour guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic; he took the time to answer everyone's questions. We wish we could have seen a plane being painted. We booked a later tour date and arrived before the previous tour and they let us switch to the earlier tour so we didn't have to wait.... More

Getting to see a Boeing 747 being assembled or hordes of B-777 or dream liners on the assembly floor is a delight for interested person to watch. When you understand the logistic of getting all parts together on the floor your awe stuck. Future of flight aviation is a decent exhibition but nothing compared to trip through the Boeing Factory

Well,,, by now you probably know that I can't post a picture. *they're not allowed. But the tour was prompt, fairly interesting, well run and presented. We could hear or guide over the factory noise and slew of translators for the non-citizens in our group. It's a good "1 time" type thing to cross off your bucket list

Excellent 1/2 day tour from Seattle, friendly driver to and from hotel. The actual tour of the production line is about 90 mins, amazing size of the site and to see actual planes being made on mass inside one building was the highlight. So much to take in. If you like planes then this a must.

The Everett Boeing tour offers the chance to come close to the assembly of its many venerable aircraft. The 90-minute tour took us around the plant that the tour guide claimed was the largest building in the world. It stretched for over a mile and houses the assembly of the 747, 767, 777 and 787. We saw airplanes in various... More

Seeing where the Boeing 747, 777, 787 are built was amazing. The tour is 1 1/2 hours long with a lot of walking and some stairs. You see the production line from above the plant so your view of the planes is unique. The building is the largest production assembly line in the world. To get around they take you... More
